One of the best herds in Sweden is ProCROSS!
The ProCROSS adventure started in 2011 at Skråmered Farm. Here, the 100% ProCROSS herd is now one of the most efficient in Sweden and has been ranked N°1 for yield in the area of Halland and number 3 across whole Sweden.
Now, the 333 ProCROSS cows are producing average yields of 14,012kg, 4.1% fat and 3.6% protein.
Longevity and fertility of the ProCROSS are also clear, since the farm was able to export more than 100 pregnant ProCROSS heifers to the UK in 2019. On average, the conception rate for the herd is 1.9 inseminations per pregnancy, including the use of 60% sexed semen.
